Case of the Sleepies

We count it as a certainty that everyone naps in paradise. I appreciate a good nap, especially so today. Feeling a strong case of the sleepies. Today it was ok though. Got things done. And more. It always amazes me how on sleepy days, I get as much or more work done. It’s likeContinue reading “Case of the Sleepies”

A first-rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting.   Abraham Maslow Chicken soup from my partner means the world to me.

I used to put aContinue reading “Possibility”

Let’s Get Started!

Almost all good writing begins with terrible first efforts. You need to start somewhere. Anne Lamott I want to spit out perfect first drafts. It’s true. But what really really helps me deal with the perfectionist monster is making myself write these blog posts everyday. Some days they are great! Most days I’m just keepingContinue reading “Let’s Get Started!”
